‘Placemaking – Time + Nature + Culture’ By Remi

Remi’s (Tara Remington) latest exhibition is timely, combining the “concepts of place, freedom and human rights. As an artist and woman, I create in search of personal freedom and to remind others of our infinite capacity to change, evolve and to care.” She has given a lot of thought to perceptions of space and time. After years of working with the homeless, she considers the “lack of place for our fellow humans [to be] a crime against humanity.” Even the medium Remi uses is important; she chose plaster as a metaphor for how fragile life is. Included in the exhibition are pieces from her series “ISEEU: PUBLIC ART + ACTIVISM. “ When sold, the funds are earmarked to go toward a public artwork Remi is planning to create. The gallery is also showing “Everything is Connected” by Dena Williams through Jan. 28
